— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 77
As I faced the Eighth Step, everything that was required for successful completion of the previous seven Steps came together: courage, honesty, sincerity, willingness and thoroughness, I could not muster the strength required for this task at the beginning, which is why this Step reads “Became willing. . . . ”
I needed to develop the courage to begin, the honesty to see where I was wrong, a sincere desire to set things right, thoroughness in making a list, and willingness to take the risks required for true humility. With the help of my Higher Power in developing these virtues, I completed this Step and continued to move forward in my quest for spiritual growth.

Good Morning! What a perfect day for the reflection on the A.A. site to be “letting go of our old selves”. What better way to do that than donating to a terrific cause and letting go(donating) items you may no longer need to a great cause such as Club East and play a role in helping people put their lives back together one step at a time!?!? The rummage sale is in full swing today! Come by the Club if you are looking to shop items(we’ve got clothes, desks, couches, fireplaces, books, etc.). If you are looking for a place to have some good, clean fun and lend a helping hand then swing by as well, there will be no shortage on help needed as we look to rebuild lives on the eastside of Indy!
Look forward to seeing you and God Bless!
Hello and God Bless! Serenity!
This is a reminder that we are excited to kick-off the annual Rummage Sale at Club East today through Sunday.
A lot of work has gone into this and SO MANY wonderful people have donated such amazing items to help the Club.
I have seen everything from fireplaces to mattresses to clothes and couches and everything in between showing up. It is truly amazing to see the out-pour of support coming in for the Club.
Please be sure to tell your friends and family to come by.
Anyone looking for opportunities to volunteer to help during the rummage sale please call the Club and ask for Jim Gross.
The important question about addiction is: Is it really a “disease?” Pleasure Unwoven presents the arguments for and against this compelling question. The one-hour documentary, filmed in high-definition and recipient of NAATP’s 2010 Michael Q. Ford Journalism Award, uses the spectacular landscape of Utah’s State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction and turns complex neuroscientific concepts into easy-to-understand visual images. Reviewing all the latest research about addiction along the way, Pleasure Unwoven will help people in recovery understand their own struggle and in turn feel better understood, and encourage their families and friends in believing that recovery is possible.
Pleasure Unwoven: A Personal Journey about Addiction
Thursday, April 23rd Club East Cafe
7:00PM Free Admission
Pleasure Unwoven is the best critical representation of the addiction process I’ve seen to date. For anyone seriously hoping to end destructive addictive behavior involving alcohol or drugs, this is a gotta see, as it is for anyone with someone in their life who struggles with any addiction. This beautifully filmed — but more importantly — excellently written documentary will help viewers understand the complicated neurological and medical components of addiction. — greg w
